Rapper XXXTentacion was shot on Monday and pronounced dead just hours later.
According to TMZ, The Broward Co. Fire Dept. said that XXX had been rushed to a hospital as a “Level 1” trauma patient. Dispatchers also described him as comatose.
The 20-year-old rapper was shopping for a motorcycle while in South Florida, but when he attempted to leave a gunman ran up to his car and shot him. Witnesses say they heard multiple shots fired.
While XXX was no stranger to beef, it’s unknown at this time if this incident was connected to one of his feuds. Dispatchers described the shooting suspects as 2 black males wearing hoodies; the shooter was wearing a red mask.
TMZ also reports, “the car has been confirmed as a black Dodge Journey, with dark tint and black wheels.”
Just last year, the young rap star was jumped while in LA and initially thought the Migos were involved. However, he later found out they weren’t, but he did increase his security as a result. XXX was also awaiting trial on several felony charges, including domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend.
